1940 was certainly an eventful year in history, with the world becoming preoccupied with World War II. If your loved one was born in 1940 and will be celebrating their 80th birthday, then an original newspaper from any date of that year makes a fascinating nostalgic gift. Your recipient can look back on the headlines from their birthday, and see what events made headline news. Or, if your recipient has a passion for history, then a newspaper from 1940 would make a very interesting read! With a wide range of original issues available from different publications, you can choose a newspaper from the Date of your choice.
Even more, each original newspaper comes with a Certificate of Authenticity to prove that it’s a genuine original copy. This can be personalised for your recipient, letting you add any Name and Message to make this gift extra special.
In 1940, newspaper headlines were filled with stories of war and destruction as the world was plunged into the Second World War. In January, food rationing had begun in Britain, and in May, Winston Churchill replaced Neville Chamberlain as Prime Minister. Churchill gave his famous ‘We shall fight on the beaches’ speech in June, and the Battle of Britain began in July.
In other newspaper headlines, Roosevelt was elected as President of the United States for the third time, and “Pinnochio,” Walt Disney’s second feature length film, premiered in New York. You can discover more fascinating headlines by reading an original newspaper from 1940!
You can personalised your 1940 newspaper with any Name of up to 22 characters, any Occasion of up to 42 characters, and any Message of up to 5 lines with 35 characters per line. This personalisation will appear on the Certificate of Authenticity.
